Dinsdale Bin Inn (Land of Noms)

Last night I had the opportunity to chat to Alison Short, owner of

Dinsdale Bin Inn

(Hamilton).

Holy smoke, this Bin Inn is fantastic for us allergy-affected folk!

Alison's built a fantastic range of

gluten-free, dairy-free, nut-free, sugar-free and organic products

These aren't just the products you'll find at the supermarket either. There's some really yummy options here, and a lot of food options that I haven't seen anywhere else <ooh

Pana chocolate

!!!>.

Alison let me interrupt her busy

evening to take her photo - thanks Alison!

Alison really knows her products too, and is passionate about providing high-quality allergy-friendly products to her growing customer base.

So why the interest in allergy-free food?

Alison's son was diagnosed with Autism at the age of two. Like many autistic families, she was interested to learn about the impact that gluten can have on autism (I'll talk more about that in a later blog post). Her son's health dramatically improved on a gluten-free diet, and she has been committed to improving his health through diet ever since.

One of the fab things about Dinsdale Bin Inn is the range of gluten-free flours. So you can still buy in bulk, but without the worry of contamination. Gluten-free flours are stored away from gluteny flours to prevent cross-contamination (bonus!)

Aside from food you'll find the usual Bin Inn staples in store - bulk bird feed, brewing ingredients, cleaning products etc. and you'll find an ever-increasing range of environmentally friendly products, and organic therapeutic and beauty products.

Alison says in the near future she'll be bringing in a range of allergy-friendly breads and increasing her range of organic products.

Such a great store! Check it out guys!
